"A big juicy wedge of jazz history.
      . . . Lots of wonderful stories."
      -- Los Angeles Daily News  
      "Kansas City was a hub for Jazz bands that crisscrossed the country in
        the 1930s. . . . The interviews go beyond jazz into the infamous political
        machinery that made Kansas City a wide-open and corrupt town where jazz
        could flourish."
        -- Choice
      "A wealth of stories, a good measure of entertainment and a valuable
        stab at history -- not to mention some great pictures."
        -- The Kansas City Star
